“SuperSport & Sundowns Crushed Pirates’ Confidence” – Reader’s Voice

Orlando Pirates have lost a lot of quality in their team, which is not to say that the players that are still with the team aren’t good - but the team is still missing the likes of Andile Jali, Thandani Ntshumayelo, Kermit Erasmus, Sifiso Myeni and Daine Klate.

These players used to start week in and week out, and all the coaches this season failed to build a team that can compete again. The 6-1 loss to SuperSport  and 6-0 loss to Sundowns  also did damage and it found the players lacking confidence after it crushed them.

They became so scared of conceding that some of the tackles they have made are questionable. Another point is that the defence concedes, week in and week out. Until the goalkeepers can keep clean sheet, they will always struggle to win.

What do you think is behind Pirates’ poor form?
